The Amateur Championship Final ends in home success

36 holes at Royal St George's GC, Sandwich, Kent.


Harry Ellis wins at the 38th

Ellis birdied long seventh, eighth and 14th.
Perry birdied fifth and short 11th.
Never more than a hole in it either way over the first round.
Ellis was one up when he birdied the 17th but lost the 18th to be all square going into lunch

Perry won 23rd, 24th, 25th and 27th to surge 4 up.
Ellis won back the 28th but lost to the 29th to be 4 down again
Ellis won 30th to be 3 down with 6 to play.
Perry won the 31st to be four up for a third time
But the Australia bogeyed the 32nd, 34th and 35th to be only one up on the 36th tee. Late drama!
Perry had his third bogey in a row and his fourth in the last five holes to lose the 36th hole ... ALL SQUARE!
Ellis four over par for the 36 holes.
Perry parred a hole for the first time since the 33rd to halve the 37th.
Perry double-bogeyed the 38th to lose the hole and the match.
Harry Ellis (Meon Valley) from Southampton is the new Amateur Champion.
